Welcome back to Last Week with ShipStation, where we cover some our goings-on in the last 7ish days. Take a quick break from your holiday orders and see what’s happening in our world:

Last Week’s Shenanigans

We’re not trying to say ShipStation’s a big deal buuuuuuuuut…

Every year, we release the domestic shipping deadlines for UPS, FedEx, and USPS. But we’re not the only ones that think it’s an important piece of information: Lifehacker does, too (among a lot of others). If you want to see what Lifehacker had to say about shipping deadlines, just click here.

Going right off that, we had the opportunity to share our infographic and some holiday shipping tips with eBay. Feast your eyes on a few last minute ways to make sure holiday shipping is easy breezy by visiting the blog.

Webinar Wednesdays

On Wednesday, Austin hosted an amazingly informative webinar, focused around how you can brand your shipping ahead of the holidays. These tips are great for any time of year but they’re especially helpful for getting your brand established during the holidays, so you standout and make an impression.

In case you missed it, we’ve got it for you below:

User Meetup

We hosted our ShipStation User Meetup on Thursday, Dec. 9th. Fellow Austin-based partner, BigCommerce, was our co-sponsor and Tracey, their Editor-in-Chief, spoke about branding and marketing NOW to retain customers after the holidays (great minds think alike!). Read some of her thoughts on branding here.

Our own Charla led an icebreaker (on Austin’s coldest night of the year) and gave away a $100 gift card to one of our users. Thanks to everyone that braved Austin’s coldest night to hang out.

If you’re in Austin come January 19th, make sure you join us for the next User Meetup! Webgility will be here to help get you prepared for taxes.


Talk Around Town

We’re launching a new, live video/vlog/series on Monday: Talk Around Town. We’ll have a conversation with someone in the ecommerce space about anything ecommerce related—this time, we’re talking to Cody, Ariel, and Nick about automation rules, the Branded Tracking Page, and hotkeys. Check out our announcement video:

Words to Live By

This week’s Words to Live By comes from Adam S., our Online Marketing Manager:
